DB Jeremy McDuffie (5-11 169) of Snellville, GA is a speedster on the football field and the track. As a cornerback last season, McDuffie had 60 tackles and 2 interceptions. As a running back, he rushed for 600 yards in only three games. And on the track, he’s one of the nation’s top hurdlers and triple jumpers.
McDuffie plans to compete in both sports in college and he has 13 offers with Tennessee leading USC, Duke and Georgia Tech in that order. Some of his other offers are Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Boston College.
GA Mangus is recruiting McDuffie for USC and was by the school earlier in the spring.
“We talk every once in a while,” McDuffie said. “He said he liked my footwork. I plan to visit next week or sometime in June. It seems like a great school and I’d love to go there. I k now some of the people there. I’d love to play corner there and be a playmaker.”
McDuffie has not yet visited Tennessee either but the Vols hold the favorites’ role right now. “They’ve kept in touch with me the longest and they were the first big offer,” he said.
McDuffie isn’t rushing into a decision with a timeline right now of mid season. “I”m looking at football and track,” he said, “and coaches who will watch over me and better me as a player and a person.”
Because of a heavy track schedule this summer, McDuffie won’t be able to attend many summer camps.
